Tesla opens first showroom in Dubai
Tesla opened its first retail store and service centre on Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road Wednesday night. The 17,000 square foot space features the brand’s award-winning, all-electric Model S and Model X.
The brand had announced its arrival in both the UAE and Jordan this year, inviting customers to visit its online design studio and order the vehicles, with the first orders of the Model S and Model X vehicles already in the UAE by June 2017.
According to Tesla, all vehicles produced in its factory, including the Model 3, will have the hardware needed for full self-driving capability at a safety level substantially greater than that of a human driver.
Tesla’s Model S accelerates from 0 to 100kph in just 2.7 seconds, while its SUV, the Model X, accelerates from 0 to 100kph in 3.1 seconds.
Prices start at $76,599 (AED281,350) for Model S, and $90,527 (AED332,500) for Model X.
